Fernival Weekend - Coca Cola Slope Soaker
After an incredibly successful first year…the Coca Cola Slope Soaker is back!

Strap on your skis or snowboard and see if you can make it across our Slope Soaker pond located on the lower mountain beside the Timber Chair.

Participants are encouraged to dress up in creative costumes as crossing the pond is not the only goal. Extra prizes and points will be awarded for creativity/costumes, effort, crowd reaction, biggest splash etc. Plus all the registered participants are entered in for amazing draw prizes from our sponsors!!

This fun event is open to anyone 12 years of age and older. Registration is $15+gst and can be done at Guest Services. Registration will open on Friday, April 5th. This year proceeds from the event are going to be donated to Fernie Search and Rescue.
